Khakhra gets healthier and tastier due to addition of oats and crunchy sesame seeds. Oats provide energy and protein to the kids along with good amount of fibre while sesame seeds add iron to their meals. Make the khakhras in batches and store them in an air-tight container to serve them to your kids at any time of the day they feel hungry.


Quick cooking rolled oats flour 1/2 Cup (8 tbs)
Whole wheat flour 1/2 Cup (8 tbs)
Sesame seeds 2 Teaspoon
Chili powder 1/2 Teaspoon
Turmeric powder 1 Pinch
Salt To Taste
Oil 2 Teaspoon
Whole wheat flour 2 Tablespoon (For dusting and rolling)
Water 2 Tablespoon (as needed)



1. In a bowl, combine rolled oats flour, wheat flour, sesame seeds, chili powder, turmeric powder, salt, and oil. Mix well and knead into firm dough using a little water. 

2. Divide the dough into 12 equal portions and using little flour roll out each portion into 3-inch diameter thin circle.

3. Heat a non-stick griddle and cook each khakhra over low flame on both sides until pink spots appear. Now, press with folded muslin cloth and cook until crisp and brown. Cool and store in an air-tight container.



4. Serve and enjoy!



To get ½ cup of oats flour, grind ½ cup of quick cooking rolled oats in a mixer and use as required.
